I read the sticky about image sensor defect, but it only listed 3 or 4 models. I have an a620 I bought 2 years ago off Ebay. And just today on my last shot got these results. The 2nd is a crop.

Is the a620 part of the affected image sensor cameras? or is this just a random error possibly with lens flare?

The most recent listing of cameras that are affected doesn't include the A620, but it can't hurt to call Canon and see if they may be willing to consider covering yours. You'd have to send it in and they'd evaluate it and let you know. If it isn't the same issue, they'll give you an estimate which you don't need to accept. They might offer you a "Loyalty" upgrade to a current or recent model with comparable specs for around the cost of a repair, in the worst case.

I wouldn't want to use their "loyalty" program because they would offer the garbage a590 or a1000 or a2000 refurbished models. I bought a used a620 because Canon stopped making good P&S cameras. The only camera they still make similar to the a620 is the g11: flip-out LCD, large image sensor, fast aperture lens. And I doubt they'd give me a refurbished g11 without me paying $100 which I am in no position to fork over.
